About Faith Sternlieb
Faith was a PhD student in the Department of Geosciences at CSU working with Dr. Melinda Laituri. Her fellowship identified and map geospatial attributes that characterize institutional boundaries at different scales for the provision of water resources for livelihoods, livestock, and wildlife. The aim was to demonstrate innovative ways that will encourage collaborative governance in the Mara River Basin, a trans-boundary watershed in Kenya and Tanzania. As part of her fellowship, she traveled to the basin in June of 2010 and met stakeholders, identified communities and study sites, and consolidated relationships with partners.
